In a startling development, former BCCI president and ex-Team India captain Sourav Ganguly reported the theft of his phone from his home in Kolkata on Saturday. Ganguly's phone, valued at Rs 1.6 lakh, disappeared from his residence in Behala, Kolkata, prompting him to lodge a complaint at the nearest police station. 

Of particular concern to Ganguly is the potential for data theft, as his phone contains sensitive information.

The incident unfolded on Saturday, with Sourav Ganguly registering a complaint at the Thakurpukur police station later that day. He revealed that his phone, which holds sensitive personal data and is linked to his bank account, vanished from his house after he left it in a designated location.

According to his complaint, Ganguly last saw his phone at around 11:30 AM inside the house before it went missing. The ongoing painting work at his residence has brought masons into the picture, and they are now being questioned regarding the theft. 

The phone reportedly granted access to multiple accounts and stored contact details of important individuals, raising concerns about potential misuse. The loss of the phone is a significant setback for Ganguly due to its access to multiple accounts and sensitive personal data.

Currently serving as the Director of Cricket for the Delhi Capitals (DC) franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Ganguly will be actively involved with the team in the upcoming season. He has been part of DC’s backroom staff since stepping down as BCCI president. 

Ganguly will collaborate with former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, who serves as the head coach of the Delhi Capitals. Their involvement in pre-season activities in Kolkata last year suggests a similar scenario this year.

Ganguly and the rest of the Delhi Capitals management are hopeful that star wicket-keeper batter and captain Rishabh Pant will achieve full fitness ahead of IPL 2024. Pant, who suffered serious injuries in a car accident in December 2022, is on the path to recovery and has been seen batting in the nets on several occasions. While Ponting remains optimistic about Pant's participation in this year's IPL, he has refrained from confirming a specific return date.
